Arlen Specter Is Fighting Cancer, Still Teaching at Penn

At 82, you’d figure that former senator and adjunct professor Arlen Specter might want to slow down, especially given that he is currently saddled with a cancer diagnosis. And, of course, you’d figure wrong: Specter will still co-teach his class at U Penn, “Congress, the Constitution and the Supreme Court,” with fellow professor (and former General Counsel) Matthew Wiener. We are talking about the same guy who has beat Hodgkin’s disease twice within a couple of years, so this appears to be tough-old-guy-business as usual. [Daily Pennsylvanian]
